Wrestlers have been protesting in Jantar Mantar in Delhi since April under the leadership of Bajrang Punia, Sakshi Malik, and Vinesh Phogat. They have accused Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh, the president of the WFI, of sexually harassing multiple wrestlers, including a minor.
This took place after a meeting between the members of the protest and Indian Home Minister Amit Shah on Saturday at his official residence. After withdrawing her name, Malik has reportedly returned to her position in the Northern Railway. This raised a lot of questions towards the Olympic medalist by the media which she cleared out in a recent tweet.
She wrote in a translated tweet: “This news is completely wrong. In the fight for justice, none of us has backed down, nor will we. Along with Satyagraha, I am fulfilling my responsibility in Railways. Our fight continues till justice is served. Please don’t spread any wrong news.” According to Malik she will fight for justice and subsequently complete her responsibility in the railways.
